Hello world!

3 Comments

The Bega Valley, Eurobodalla Shire and the Sapphire Coast are blessed with native wildlife, mountains, beaches and an emerging local food and permaculture movement. We are slowly building a resilient community supported by volunteers and a plethora of not for profit associations. This blog will try to tell a little of its story and its on-going transition as we deal with changes brought about by fire, flood, drought, climate change and economic pressures both those already experienced and those yet to come.

  2. Have you heard of the food sovereignty movement? I had not until I read this http://blogs.nottingham.ac.uk/makingsciencepublic/2014/01/03/34321/
    I wondered if there are any links with permaculture?

    • I had a look at the Making Science Public blog on food security and it sounds very similar to the permaculture movement. There are quite a lot of “Permies” in the Bega Valley, perhaps because there is still some reasonably priced land, although most of them bought in a while ago. The movement promoting local food is still chugging along quite well, we have local cheese and local milk from Tilba and from Bodalla, local free range poultry and eggs, local fish from the fishermans co-op.
      There is also a lot action looking at agriculture in terms of soil protection and using fewer chemical inputs, trying to reintroduce native grasses and so on. There is a farm locally that I want to follow up on and if I can I will include it on my blog.
